I really hate food that is sweet unless it is dessert or sweet potatoes, corn, or green peas, so this recipe looked like a winner. I usually read the reviews before I try a new recipe, but I was in a hurry tonight, and I'm glad I didn't read them. I did find this recipe very bland, but I smelled and tasted (I cook more by smell than taste) and began to alter it mid way through. I had used minced garlic (from a jar for quickness) and I added some garlic salt and additional soy sauce. I also used frozen vegetables, a can of sliced water chestnuts, a can of bamboo shoots, and a jar of mushrooms. Since this was a lot of vegetables, I cooked a bit more chicken, too. Instead of white rice, I used wild and long grain because that's what we prefer, and I often cook it with broth instead of water to add flavor. My husband really liked this recipe. I like much spicier food than he, so I would probably have liked a bit more zing, maybe even making it hot with some minced chili or something, but it was still really good.
